4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life here is basically like anywhere else. There are many options of local and national sororities and fraternities to choose from. Every sorority and fraternity has a dedicated philanthropy that they all work hard to fundraise for. The greeks do things within the campus community and outside community.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different options for people to choose from for housing off campus. There are houses, condos, and apartments that one can rent.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of adorable non-chain restaurants in Kenosha to visit. The prices are usually fair. There are some wonderful expensive and tasty restaurants as well.

College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party at people's houses. If I want a drink, I'll go to the bar because I am of legal age.

3 College Junior

Administration: The administration sets strict rules, yet they don't always enforce those strict rules. They make students pay $1,000 for parking right on campus, but they tell you that you aren't guaranteed or entitled to a parking spot. Security takes their sweet time when they respond to calls. They aren't the most professional, and act like they are superior.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Carthage College is an expensive school, however they do offer a variety of scholarship options for students to apply for. It can be difficult to find those scholarships.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Cafeteria food is of low quality and does not vary. It's always the same things offered every single day. There is a severe lack of healthy options. If there are any healthy foods, they are extremely expensive. There are barely any options for vegans, vegetarians, or other food restrictions.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient because of the proximity to all the buildings. Housing is mainly based in the center of campus, making it easy to get to all places on campus in roughly 5 minutes. However, WiFi is not dependable. The main dorms are fairly clean, yet some showers have black mold in them, causing allergic reactions for some. Dorms are also quite noisy, making it difficult to concentrate and get work done in your own room.

Administration: as long as your respectful they'll treat you fairly

4 College Freshman

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Too pricy for athlete schedules and cant last long

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Food prices should be lowered for athletes

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: at Carthage College Resident Assistants are Trained to be prepared for this type of situation. it is a very closed situation. if anything hints to a sexual assault, Resident assistants are to call a hall director end the Resident Assistant is immediately removed form the situation

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: as an Athlete the accessibility to updated and well cared for equipment is available. but for the average student wishing to use the gym, the equipment is outdated and not cleaned on a regular basis. The facilities are too small and access to workout groups are few. It is difficult to join a group and even harder to ask for a personal trainer.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Carthage College is a great step, with many opportunities to have top positions and with the variety of local and international fraternities and sororities. The bond of brother and sister hood that all carthage Greek participants is something very unique to carthage. Philanthropy here is something that is highly looked at and constantly being hosted by Greek organizations

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: the neighborhoods are very diverse in safety. Unfortunately Kenosha is not known for positive Neighborhoods and the safer neighborhoods are out of college price range. The $10,000 off tuition for moving off campus makes moving into an off campus housing (apartment or house) well worth it.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Kenosha is not exactly a college town. the variety of restaurant are truly limited and only known by the locals. the distance from carthage college to local restaurants are a car ride away. no local or college transportation may take you to any dinning off campus. the next town over is Racine where there are great restaurants but they are not advertised on social media and difficult to find

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness of the dorms is dependent of the Resident Assistant staff. Every staff in every building is different. this is because retention of Resident assistants is vary poor do to the miss treatment of Resident assistants by Hall directors due to the work overload given to every hall director. Resident Assistants are not given the proper training and are not updated with campus events regularly. The over all Resident Assistant is no different than an average student with a single room.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: for respect of Carthage colleges Dry campus policy students of all clubs and activities rent houses and consider that a possible party house. all parties are exclusive and invitation only to keep numbers down and crazy situations low. carthage is a "fine" school with many social opportunities on and off campus. the night life begins around 7pm and is always done by 1:30/2:00am. Sober drivers are always easy and are designated every weekend. it is an agreed upon idea at carthage college that these sober drivers have a start and end time and are never given back to back nights.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: it is a hassle for everyone unfortunately the financial aid received freshmen year usually does not carry over for the next 3 years. on the other hand, the price of carthage college goes up every year and the scholarships do not go up with the price of the school. If students were grandfathered into the price of the school starting freshman year.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: when it comes down to food, the Caf is the best place to go. I personally have a gluten allergy so I receive fresh food every time I eat at the caf. Students get the most food for the points that they spend. for the same price as the caf, at the other food options you will only receive a sandwich, burger , or a taco.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Carthage college has amazing views of the lake and beautiful gardens and along the walk way, the unfortunate side of having a campus on the lake is the extremely cold breeze that greats the students every morning on the walk to class. there are limited food options outside the cafeteria, but the cafeteria keeps up with different meals on a very constant basis. the school is slowly updating all buildings. the science building is completely renovated with all updated equipment. the athletic building is next with a high need for updated equipment.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The groups are very much put together and some people can get a lot out of a chapter and others don't and still have a good college experience. It all depends on the person.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I love being a part of a sport, and so many peers think it's cool that people play sports. Athletes don't necessarily dictate campus life, bit they have a big impact because of the large amount of success many of the teams have. The fan sections are good too, especially if it's a big event like conference or NCAA tournaments. Heck Carthage Volleyball is hosting the championship in 2017 and I'm looking forward to watching it! (If I can)
